    Don't you have to do, like, something to be heroic?

    Also, just asking... Do you consider yourself to be one of those people?

    It's my contention that often the hero and the sociopath are simply at opposite ends of the power spectrum. Take away the hero's power and position and he'll often revert to get it back
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    A hero is usually thought of someone who saves the day.
    Like a fire fighter, for example.

    The idea of someone running into a burning building to save the lives of others is usually seen as heroic. That act places the person in a dangerous position they could've otherwise avoided in order to benefit someone else and save their life.

    Me, personally I think a hero is someone willing to take a potential risk in order to help out others.
    Like the story of an olympic swimmer who witnessed a bus going into a river. He dove in the icy water and started to pull bodies out of the water back onto the road. Then he'd jump back in and get more. He ended up with permanent damage and said he was upset that he couldn't get them all out.

    Or the fictional character zero [from the megaman series]. In Megaman Zero four near the end this piece of dialogue occurs.

    Weil: Bwahahaha! Are you even capable of it!? The Reploid hero... Protecting justice and humanity! I am one of those humans you were sworn to protect! Do you have it in you to defeat me!?
    Zero: I never cared about justice, and I don't recall ever calling myself a hero... I have always only fought for the people I believe in. I won't hesitate... If an enemy appears in front of me, I will destroy it!

    All the people he fights for call him a hero. He's considered the hero of the story. But he never cared to be called a hero, he's just trying to do what's best for those he believes in. Which, to me is pretty heroic.

    He's humble and just some guy trying to do what he can.

    I don't really believe in the idea of someone being completely altruistic - even those who serve for the greater good always receive some sort of benefit from it.

    That being said true heroes don't exist.
